‘Empire’ Stars Grace Gealey and Trai Byers Are Engaged

Love is in the air!

'Empire' stars Grace Gealey (Anika Calhoun) and Trai Byers (Andre Lyon) are engaged. According to E! News, Byers, 33, threw a surprise birthday party for Gealey, 31, at Chicago restaurant Kinmont Sunday night. During the dinner, she was seen wearing the diamond engagement ring.

"She thought it would just be the two of them going to dinner, but when they got there, he had arranged a party for about 20 of her friends and family members to surprise her," a source told the outlet. Gealey was seen wearing a diamond ring at dinner.

Guest at the dinner included 'Empire' cast members Kaitlin Doubleday (Rhonda Lyon), Gabourey Sidibe (Becky) and Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon).

We guess the next step is to build their own empire (pun intended).

As for the hit FOX series, the second season will launch on Sept. 23. Guest stars will include Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, Ludacris, Chris Rock and Kelly Rowland.

Congrats to the happy couple!
